Cultivated in China and Taiwan, oolong teas strike a balance between green and black tea. Semi-oxidation gives them complex character like black tea and bright freshness like green teas. Oolong tea is also less astringent in flavor and easy to brew.
• True tea from fresh leaves carefully oxidized for complex flavor
• Contains some caffeine
• Oolong has the antioxidant properties of both green and black teas that can help with weight loss and promote a healthy immune system
A good compromise between green and black teas, oolong tea has qualities of both. Native to China and Taiwan, most loose leaf oolong is semi-oxidized to give it full body with light, fragrant flavors that range from fruity and sweet to darker, richer and slightly smoky. Popular varieties of oolong include Iron Buddha, a lovely balance of fruity flavor and a floral nose; and Dan Cong Tea, considered the champagne of oolongs, with rich orange-brown color and notes of apricots and honey
